To create art is to open your soul.
To show your art is to open your soul and invite others to look in.
---Making art is a very private activity that leads to a very public exposure. When creating art the artist does it in his space, using his heart, soul, eyes, hands, feelings, emotions, experiences, expectations, and energies. Colors are laid down and removed, textures are created and destroyed, depth is added and subtracted, all done with the artist being the judge of success or failure within this work.
